Peljesac peninsula is a place where the colors, taste and emotions merge, forming an unique feeling of pleasure, common everywhere in the Mediterranean, yet so distinct here. Overlooking the pine shaded beaches and crystal clear blue sea, ancient villas and stony remains of the ancient walls glow under the bright Sunlight. Lemon, figs, almond trees, medical herbs and spices grow everywhere, adding color to the prevailing green mediterranean maquis.
One of the higlights of beautiful nature is the reserve of forest vegetation "Pod Gospu", a protected botanical area where mostly cypress, Aleppo pine and stone pine grow.
Windsurfers and sailors are highly attracted to Viganj beach, where a light wind always blows, forming long waves, ideal for fun and sports.
Peljesac is not only known for lovely beaches and clean sea, but for its mountain as well. The highest peak of Peljesac, Sveti Ilija, is 961m high. Effort of climbing to the summit is hugely rewarded by a breath taking view on the sea, coast, mainland and the islands, all spread out below you.
Archaeological research is still being held in Spila cave, near the village Nakovana. This mystical cave has been hidden by rocks for over two milleniums and is the only cave in Croatia discovered by the scientists. As such, it presents the only intact ancient Illyrian sanctuary, making it an exceptionally valuable historical site.
Peljesac is famous for more than its stunning nature - Dingac and Pustup wines. Enjoying the best of mediterranean climate, short and mild winters, and long and warm summers bathed in sunlight, wine varieties developed are concidered to be some of the world's finest. Having an ideal distribution of tannin, color, alcohol, minerals, proteins and vitamins, Dingac and Pustup are a true delight for the palate.
